Drone surveys assisting in holistic asset management

A decade of underwater surveys makes VRT a pioneer of 3D surveys. From the year 2016 we have offered our clients also an easy way to utilizing 3D data after our underwater surveys. The 3D asset management software GISGRO has received great feedback and helped many asset owners to use survey results in planning, budgeting and maintenance. The underwater is still only a part of the whole picture. That’s why we have now added to our portfolio also photogrammetry surveys with drone. Continue reading…

This serves our clients’ need for a comprehensive picture of the assets instead of having one part of information here and one there. It also enhances digitalization as the combined 3D model can be used as a digital twin for asset management purposes. In the second part of “3D Survey as a Service” blog series you get a glimpse of our field crew’s everyday work. Continue reading…
